3,2,1... Sales!

Finally sales are arrivng also in Italy. In some towns, like Naples and Rome, they've already started but not in the majority of the places. During the sales is easy to loose oneself mind and.... bring back home something that at the end we don't like and then we put it in a corner of our wardrobe.
On sales I always try to remember to buy something that can also be on the next season trend and that I can still like.
Let's make some examples starting from... shoes.

This year we saw a lot of wedges and platueau-heel laced-up shoes and booties, they're cool and pretty confortable to allow us to walk all day and still be fashionable. Here you find Zara wedged booties and Max&Co laced up hills.

What about dresses? If you still not have a Little Black Dress (LBD) in your wordrobe take the sales as an excuse to buy one... possibly a good quality one that will worth your expenditure in your future possible accasions. The one I picked is modern but still classy as well from Max&Co FW 10/11 collection.

On winter sales you can also buy something that will be usefull during hot summer night parties...choose between a simple and well shaped cocktail dresses -like Asos - or a dress embellished by lace and applications like this Valentino -if you can afford it! Good alternatives on Topshop website.

What else? Remember to add a touch of classy camel into your next outfit, it can be a cardigan or a pair of trousers, Chloè FW 10/11 is a masterpiece on the theme.

Cheaper alternative offered by many brands, like the above Max&Co pullover.

Also choose a jacquard cardigan or pullover that will grant you a"Chic Cortina" allure also in the cold days in the city. If you like this idea, shown by D&G FW 10 , check out Asos website.


Skirt? Try draped skirt, like the one of Zara (black) or Coast+Weber+Ahaus (Grey).

Trausers? Skinnies are still fantastic and good but why don't try to have a more sophisticated look with a pair of straight trousers.
Shorts? Also in the cold season they're hot, giving the advantage to make you feel more confortable than   a skirt, but still sexy showing out you legs with a pair of heels.

Don't forget to step by some vintage or second hand shop, you never know how many surprises - if you're lucky and patient enough during your search-  you can find in it.
